Creating effective, high impact development resources…that get used!


Would you like to participate in this virtual roundtable?

Wednesday 14th December 2022 

15:30 – 17:00 GMT | MS Teams

An important dimension of our Career Strategy model is enabling personal agency. By this we mean helping individuals to develop the confidence and skills they need to own and drive their career development.

A key role for the organisation is to provide its people with relevant, genuinely useful and easy to access development resources. In this virtual roundtable we’ll explore how you create tools that employees want to use, because they talk to their needs and the organisational context.

Our guest provocateur and topic

We’ve invited Michael Durrant, Senior HR Manager – Talent at Santander UK to be our provocateur for this topic. With a background in learning consulting, Michael has extensive experience of establishing collaborative relationships with multiple stakeholders to deliver outcomes that stretch individual capability and meet commercial needs.

Michael will explain how he adopted an agile approach in leading a project to create a Career Playbook of development resources at Santander. In sharing this story he will describe:

  • The importance of understanding the people you’re designing resources for
  • How real world data and insight can be used to inform design and subsequent development
  • How collaboration, partnerships and communication across teams has been essential to success
  • The importance of recognising how to learn from mistakes, celebrate them and move on
